  • How Many Workstations are you targeting?
  • all workstation in environment. close to 6000
  • how do i create a dynamic patch Label based on 2nd Tuesday for every month. I don't see any option for automatic. i can create one with release date but it would be manuall.
  • Are you running the latest released version? This feature (Patching Schedules) was enabled in version 7.0:
    Patching schedules. Administrators can now schedule patching jobs using a desired schedule, as required. You can run a patch job based on a particular day of the week within a month (for example, second Wednesday of every month).
  • ahh nice to see that option.. I am still on 6.4 .. Let me check and get back..

    Looks like , we do have option to set sechedule but no label creation based on day of month.

I'm pretty sure that you are asking about applying labels to patches, and you can create smart labels for patches. I'm not clear on what criteria you have for patches, however. Do you only want to include new patches? The K1000 will automatically make old patches inactive, so you shouldn't have to worry about that part.
